Hi Friends! It's saturday and time for another challenge with Just Us Girls! This week we are challenging you to use a template to create gift packaging and our hostess with the mostest has offered up some wonderful BLOG CANDY as incentive to try this challenge. Head on over to the JUGs blog to get a peek at the candy. I used a great Gable Box template from Kelleigh Ratzlaff Designs. Kelleigh's templates come in PDF format and PNG files that you can digitally "clip" your digital papers to before printing. Too cool for school! Since I'm pretty low tech, I use the PDF version and print right onto the back of my cardstock and away we go.
I grabbed some DP from DCWV (The Glitter Christmas Stack) and a piece of coordinating cardstock from SU! I printed the tempalte onto the back of the cardstock, cut and scored according to the template lines. The DP was cut, edger punched and scored so it would wrap neatly around the template box body. I also added a "handle" at the top using the SU! lable punch.
All that's left is the fun stuff.... to embellish! I choose a stamp from Papertrey Ink's vintage ornament set stamping light pink on cream cardstock and using a burgandy ink for the detail band across the ornament. Ribbon and tulle are fun and feminine touches to hang this ornament using a spiral clip (remember those?! loved using this piece of my "collection"). Ooohh, couldn't resist some pink glitter details either. :)
Ready to make something? We'd love it if you joined the JUGs girls with this weeks challenge.
